haha yeah man that's the best approach, just work through em all starting in 66. TDIH features one of those short raw ones, 7/1/66, that I've always liked. My favorites will probably always be 3/18/67, 8/4/67 (or is that 8/5?), and 11/10/67.

Somehow I never got around to checking out that early show from 3/20/70 until just a few months ago, got on a big aud/1970 kick and finally got around to it. I gotta agree, that is a bit of an overlooked little gem of a set.


If you're into the more modern versions (I'm not all that hot on them, but some are cool), try Phil and Friends, St. Louis, 7/10/01. They sandwich it throughout the second set, playing it a total of 4 times, one of which includes a nice Eleven jam. Don't neglect the opening Alligator>Sugaree, and the first set jam with Weir.

thanks for bringing up this topic, always have loved this one, got some good listening ahead today, always thought that Viola Lee rarely gets the attention it deserves
